Has anyone ever been on cimetidine (aka tagamet) to help get rid of flat warts?

Yes. Unfortunately it does not work. Too bad.
Warts. The cure rates in the U.S. Study are impressive, even better than those in the turkish study. The main difference between the two may be in patient selection: unlike the placebo-controlled trial, the open-label study did not require a minimum of five warts. Placebo-controlled trials are useful, especially for warts. Taken together, the studies suggest that Cimetidine may not be better than placebo.
